Pathos 1

Wandering among painting, sculpture and engraving,

I experiment with classical and contemporary artistic techniques, to tell you about my worldview.

My name is Paco Rocha and I am a Mexican artist.

I experience my art as psychological therapy

It is my medicine, the way i can release intense emotions, impulses, and sensations.

Paint brush flows on the canvas in a spontaneous way, without planning

Painting deciphers the labyrinth of my mind guiding the brushstrokes of the unconscious on to the canvas.

Expressionist paintings on canvas

When i want to go beyond reality i use an expressionist artistic painting.

What manifests is a symbolic painting where good and bad feelings appear on the canvas, through an introspective artistic technique.

Figurative paintings on canvas

I apply concepts such as the golden ratio, balance, the psychology of color.

Ideas flow, I shape them and they become visual stories to tell.

Abstract paintings on canvas

My abstract art is deeply related to listening to Jazz music.

Musical notes spread throughout the room and my mind gets rid of any contamination.

I mix the colors, almost in a state of artistic trance, applying a series of automatisms that eliminate any possibility of error.

I create chaos in the canvas to turn it into harmony.

I illustrate my stories combining watercolor, pastel paints and inks, that help me develop ideas.

I also love to experiment mixing paint with product as linoleum, leaves and feathers, to create natural textures.

Engraving is one of the first forms of printing, an ancestral technique that contemporary art continues to propose.

I studied engraving in Mexico.

Traveling to Japan and Korea I have been influenced by the minimalist technique and I have learnt different woodcut techniques on a wide range of woods.

Fantasy leaves abstraction and acquires consistency in two-dimensional or three-dimensional form.

The clay flowing through your hands, the smell of wood carving, the textures of oxidized metals, are a deep sensory experience.

Nothing has the power to inspire my art more than my travel.

From every country, from all people, i absorb colors, legends, traditions and dreams.

Along my artistic pilgrimage of over 10 years, i have met local Amazonian tribes, visited the holy cities of India, listened to the Dalai Lama in person and lived with local Philippine tribes who taught me about how to live without materialism.
I have painted inside temples, in the jungle and in places with a strong energy such as Machu Pichu. In Laos I painted on the clothes of Buddhist monks using them as a canvas. In Peru i painted jaguars in the jungles and taught Mayan children techniques for painting on dried banana tree leaves and on palm trees. In Korea i lived on the top of a tree and painted.

I will stop being an artist when I am no longer able to keep alive my sense of wonder about the world.

I have held exhibitions in most of the countries I have visited:

Italy, Spain, Korea, England, Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany and Mexico.

Traveling around the world increases my creativity. It allows me to continually make new discoveries and to transfer the different realities I know, onto canvas.


Painting vs Sculpture

Painting vs Sculpture

You often ask me if I prefer to paint or sculpt. I turn you the question: what do you prefer about my art? I look forward to seeing you at my exhibition where you can see my works live and choose: sculpture or painting?
